E-Mails from Rome

Two of my very good friends are on pilgrimage in Italy right now. I'm trying not to be envious. I was sitting at my desk at the end of the day on a Friday afternoon after a long week at work when I received an e-mail from my friends updating me on their pilgrimage, commenting that they had just visited the tombs of St. Benedict, St. Scholastica, and Pope John Paul II this week. I wish I could be there with them, however, I take consolation in the fact that they said they've been praying for me. God knows I can use the extra grace!
